The location was perfect. The room was perfect. The host, Giovanni, was lovely and very helpful. In all, our short stay in Como was PERFECT!

“Central location - great restaurants nearby.”

Romantico Blustella is situated overlooking the quaint Piazza Mazzini. It is easily reached from the railway stations and was perfect for the few nights that we stayed there. The Duomo, the waterfront, and the funicular are all an easy 5 to 10 minute stroll away. The apartment is air-conditioned which is great in hot weather. There are many great restaurants just a short walk your front door. Our personal favourite was La Columbetta.

Be aware that the apartment is up several flights of stairs and there is no lift. The apartment would not be suitable for a person with mobility issues. Overall we enjoyed our stay here very much and would recommend it to others.

“Perfect Location, Great Apartment”

We stayed in the Romantico apartment for 8 nights and we couldn't have asked for a better base for our holiday in Como. Everything we needed was there for us, other guests had even left useful items such as olive oil, vinegars, salt, pepper, etc. to which we added a box of cling film for the next visitors. The caretaker, Giovanni, is just about the nicest person you could ask to meet, so helpful with extremely good English. He had got in a bottle of wine, some bread and eggs for us and pointed us in the right direction for everything we could want during our stay. There is a folder with lots of useful info also in the apartment along with some lovely guidebooks.
The location is perfect, in the historic centre of Como a stone's throw from the lake and equidistant from both train stations and the bus station. The piazza it overlooks is family friendly & nicely buzzy especially at the weekends and we spent a fair bit of time with a glass of wine, people watching from our window, but once the windows were closed, the noise all but disappeared.
The air conditioning made life very comfortable to sleep at night and worked very well (unlike other places we have stayed). The bed was comfy, everything clean & bright and working. The only little niggle in the apartment was the limited hot water which meant we just had to get into a routine of switching the water off while we shampooed & conditioned our hair, or soaped up, so that there was enough for us both to shower in the morning before breakfast. The stairs also take some getting used to as there are 48 of them, and the final few can be a real test after a long days walking & exploring; we looked at it as a quick keep fit exercise in preparation for a good meal!
There is a fantastic civic museum in Como which we spent the morning in - sadly we were the only people in the place and it should be mentioned more in guidebooks. The shopping is superb, of course, the cathedral well worth a visit and the trips up the lake to various villas, gardens and small towns are highly recommended. If you get time, do go all the way up to the top of the lake on the boat as the scenery is breathtakingly beautiful and the character very different to further down the lake. If you are about on Saturdays, the market is good for clothes and shoes at amazing prices.
All in all, I still can't believe this little gem is available for the money, I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't have mobility issues and if we return to Como, which we may well do as there is much to see and explore (& shop!), then we will most definitely stay here again - we loved it!

“Wonderful accomodation with a beautiful piazza view from the window”

person found this review helpful

Myself and a friend spent 4 nights in September in this beautiful accomodation. We were very well looked after by Giovanni . The accomodation was comfortable with all that we needed catered for. The Piazza Mazzini was a delightful Piazza to look down on from our window. We enjoyed our meals at Le Colonne in the Piazza and loved the town of Como. The ferry was close by, walking distance, and the cruises on the Lake are not to be missed.The shops to buy groceries are also within walking distance as is the train. This accomodation set a very high standard for the remainder of our month long stay in Italy. Thank you Gillian and it was a pleasure meeting you Giovanni. I still miss the beautiful Piazza.

“Romantico Blustella is fabulous”
Reviewed 23 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Romantico Blustella is in the centre of Como just off a bustling square. We were met by Giovanni who was extremely helpful. The apartment is clean and well furnished. We really enjoyed our stay and will be returning next year for a business meeting.
